Milena was so accommodating and she took shots of raw and candid moments. My birth photos are so precious to me in so many ways. She really captured moments that I didn’t really understand how profound they were until I saw the pictures. She knows the moments that need capturing and has an amazing eye!

We love the candid moments Milena catches- she captures the dynamics of our family. We also really like some of the special little extra touches and can’t wait for our next milestone to celebrate so we can plan another session!

Milena’s friendly demeanor and professional work were exactly what we wanted. I love the way she uses natural light and captures such vibrant color... I never knew how much I would appreciate a physical copy of each photo rather than having just the digital files. Thank you so much for capturing our family’s love!

Hi! My name is Milena!

I am a lifestyle photographer based in San Antonio, TX.

I love to capture real relationships, real interactions, real moments with your family. I rarely pose my clients for photos and I try to give direction that leads to authentic interactions that can be lovingly captured just the way they are.


You can expect to have fun in your sessions, you can expect to snuggle your loved ones, tell stories, sing songs and laugh!! You can expect excellent service and to have the opportunity to be vulnerable, truly seen, and openly celebrated when you have your moments captured by me.

I am a big believer that professional photography is meant to be displayed. You are making a significant investment with me, so I want to make that investment worth your while. Every portrait session I provide includes an Ordering Session within a week or 2 of the photos to choose your prints, canvases or albums, and I always provide digital copies of anything you print for sharing on social media.


A little insight on me:

  • I have been married to the love of my life since 2011; he's an incredible hiphop artist and you should check out his music! (IG: @tracethekidmusic)

  • I work from home and have 2 of the ca-YUTEST kids you have ever seen in your life

  • I have recently discovered an insatiable need for caffeine. I never liked coffee before, but now it’s basically a love language to bring me a mocha frap made with almond milk!

  • I used to be a birth and postpartum doula, so mommies and babies are my zone and I can talk about birth, babies, breastfeeding and all things surrounding mom-life for hours

  • I try to be Keto, but I fail a lot

  • I am pretty crunchy but I don't raise chickens or have a backyard garden yet... but I do believe that prayer on top of essential oils can fix most things, along with elderberry syrup and coconut oil.

  • I plan to homeschool my tiny humans when the time comes and I need all the mom friends I can find! Some of my favorite friends are my clients!

  • I recently became an admin in a local facebook group dedicated to helping moms learn to use their DSLR cameras. I would love to help you if you need it, just reach out!
